Delicious Summer Savings

As an electric cooperative, OEC is a community-focused organization that works to efficiently deliver affordable, reliable, and safe energy to our member-consumers. It may seem odd that a utility would go to great lengths to educate our member-consumers on ways to save energy and therefore spend less on their monthly bill. But we are led by an exceptional Board of Directors composed of consumers like you who belong to the communities we serve. Under their leadership we work tirelessly to find new ways to best serve you.

Insert this week’s #WattsUpWednesday cooking edition. One of the easiest ways to save money is to divert large appliance use to off-peak hours (peak hours are Monday through Friday from 3-7 PM, excluding holidays and weekends, between June 1 and August 31). The below menu uses several different low or no electricity to create a meal fit for royalty (or at the very least, our Marketing and Member Relations team).

Feel free to direct any questions and we will let our Energy Efficiency Solutions Specialist (who moonlights as a gourmet chef), Daniel Lofland, answer your questions. Without any further ado, our epic menu:

This week on #WattsUpWednesday, we learn to cook with low or no energy to save money.

Pulled Pork Sliders

  • Pork Shoulder or Pork Butt
  • BBQ sauce
  • Broth (we used vegetable)
  • Sweet dinner rolls

Place the Pork Shoulder in the pot and submerge with broth. Cover and cook according to the directions (4 hours for CrockPot, 45 minutes for InstantPot). You will know it’s ready when it falls off the bone (and smells exquisite). Remove from the pot and shred with forks. Top with your favorite barbeque sauce and serve on sweet dinner rolls.

Baked Beans on The Grill

You may have a magical family recipe for baked beans, but we had to wrap this series up over our lunch hour, so we bowed to the experts with the #secretfamilyrecipe. Just open the can, pour it in the pot and warm it up. Voila.

Southern Potatoes (via Grill)

  • Potato (1/2 per person)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Bell Pepper
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Cut potatoes, onion and bell pepper into bite-size pieces. Toss together with extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Place mixture in pan and grill until tender and scrumptious.
